Harmful Products

Items like dental amalgams, thermostats, light bulbs, batteries, and other products that contain mercury are hazardous to the environment and cannot be discarded with garbage.

You can use an internet search database such as The Blue Book to find a licensed hazardous waste hauler.

The NYS Department of Environmental Conservation maintains a list of hazardous waste haulers than will accept elemental mercury. When contacting haulers, ask for certification that the mercury will go to a recycling facility.
